Rookie cornerback Jimmy Smith has signed his deal with the Ravens and has already started practice. It is reported that all of the Baltimore Ravens 2011 draft picks are now signed. It is expected that Jimmy Smith will start now that Josh Wilson has signed with the Washington Redskins.
It was also reported that Jimmy Smith had a gery good first practice with the team and looks good physically. He has been studying the playbook during the lockout and is picking up on the denfensive schemes rather quickly. He will have to be a fast learner because the Ravens will play the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first game of the season.
